Re: Hard Spun Foals

Afleet Destiny won race #8 at Parx today. Won rather easily by 2 or 3 lengths. She finally gets her second win in 17 starts. She has been put in races way over her head. She may have enough talent to win a stakes at some point, but glad to see her trainer finally put her where she could win. Maybe ...

Oh, my! Looks like Spun To Run will run into Maximum Security soon.

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Hard to be Humble (2 year old colt) won the first race at Aqueduct today, a 6F MSW race in 1:08:80. Looks like a runner! video replay: https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/race/usa/aqu/2019/11/10/1/race-1-msw-at-aqu-on-11-10-19 EDIT: Got an 83 Beyer, faster than the stakes race later on the card.

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Out For A Spin came back after 6 months off in an AOC at Churchill today. She finished 3rd. I was hoping for better, but not a bad result off the layoff. She ran eagerly just off the pace in the early going and made a move at the leader to within about a half length, but then flattened out.

HIDDEN SCROLL is in South Florida. He worked out 2 days ago at Payson Park
Looking forward to seeing him in action. I hope he can improve off his spring campaign.

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Free My Soul only beat one horse in the Kathryn Crosby Stakes at Del Mar today. First time I saw her in action and she is a HUGE girl! Dwarfed the other fillies. This was her second start off a long layoff, but she was in over her head. EDIT: Just realized she was in against older and she was the o...

Happy Endings: Did you hear anything about where Spun to Run is headed next? Hoping they run him in the G1 Cigar Mile at Aqueduct on Dec 7.

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Lucullan tied for 11th in the BC Mile last Saturday. Next to last. He is better than that and ran into trouble on the stretch run. Tried to go through an opening on the rail and got shut down. He was totally boxed in and when that option didn't work out he lost all chance for a better placing. I sa...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Makes one wonder if she doesn't take to the Churchill track. If she tanks this race they might just decide that Churchill isn't the track for her. From PPs, this is a real possibility. Maybe she trains ok there and those bad Churchill races are coincidence that her worst 2 races in her lifetime wer...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Out For A Spin back in action in race #6 at Churchill Down this coming Saturday! Have been wondering about her. Last seen in Kentucky Oaks where she finished 11th. She really tanked in that race after winning the Ashland. Must have had something wrong to be off for 6 months since then. She also ran...

Interesting back story on how SPUN TO RUN was purchased and how he ended up at the Breeder's Cup.

TIMELINE finished last in his race. 🥺 What the heck has happened to him? Very disappointing. I hope he is all right.

Saving the best for last, I guess. Just found this replay of Spun To Run 's win the Dirt Mile from NBC. It shows parts of the race from above and is the highest resolution replay I have found.

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Here is a DRF article with another replay of Spun To Run 's win yesterday, with TVG staff discussion following. Matt Carothers had picked Spun To Run to win. So did Jerry Moss on NBC's telecast. Jerry said at one point that STR's 110 Beyer in the race at Parx was legit. And now with a 109 yesterday,...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Spun to Run earned a Beyer Speed Number of 109 yesterday. He certainly validated his 110 from his prior race.
